Climate Kids and San Diego Rising Tides Project Participate in Pacific Beach Elementary Science Nigh


On February 24th, the Climate Science Alliance brought Climate Kids back to Pacific Beach Elementary for their family science night. We collaborated with Rising Tides Project Marine Biologist, Niko Kaplanis, who engaged local K-5 students with large printouts of local tidepools, examples of local tidepool organisms, a seaweed touch-tank, and marine biology sampling gear. With the help of Climate Kids Ambassadors from Mission Bay High School, we also hosted two additional stations to teach kids and parents about ocean acidification and San Diego Carnivores. Students were provided activity sheets, encouraging them to ask make observations and ask questions about local ecology and issues affecting their local environment. Once each student completed the activity sheet, they received a Climate Kids prize of their choice.

This was an exciting event because it allowed us to see how much these students remembered from our Climate Kids programming - which was a lot! These Climate Kids experts brought their parents and siblings along for the adventure, making this a great opportunity for us to engage people of all ages on the topic of climate change.
